I visited this hotel during a congress and was really happy with the choice. big rooms, relaxing beds, great hall, very helpful staff rich buffet... I would like better flavors in breakfast but this is a detail which will not alter my overall positive impressions... also great positioning at the center of the city and near the market.

With the end of the pick beach season in Greece, you can have a very good alternative in a mountain town by the lake in Ioannina (northern Epirus). It's a very comfortable and good value for money resort, with comfort and exquisite greek food, in an area that offers a rich choice of travel and tours, from Metsovo in the... More

Stayed at Grand Sera in Ioannina. The place was absulutly magnificent. From staff to breakfast to the pool. Location in town only 10 to 15 min walk to the lake. The owner of Mitsi Hotel past away when we were there. He must have been a great guy. All of the staff had great things to say about him. Mitsi... More

Very big room, quiet place, friendly staff and I would say cheap for a 5-star. The hotel is practically in the city centre on the city's busiest street and close to the lake. Breakfast buffet could be richer, but in general OK. I will definitely stay here if I visit the city again.

The hotel has a good location in the city of Ioaninna. It's a small walk to the city centre, castle and lake. The staff are really friendly and helpful. You should definitely include breakfast because they have a very extensive choice. The outside swimming pool was nice and quiet. The rooms are fine and clean but nothing special. A few... More

The rooms were large, quite luxurious although a little date. The pool was wonderful. The full breakfast buffet was very good. Service was excellent, very friendly and helpful, providing good information about area attractions. The only reason they did not get five stars is that some of the public areas were not air conditioned, and were not pleasant to be... More
